The gun control mob is not resting.

Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee kicked the year off by introducing H.R. 127, a gun control bill that would require gun owners to undergo psychological evaluations, licensing, gun registration after the fact, and even possess a license for modern sporting rifles. 

The pro-Second Amendment organization the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said on January 29, 2021 that this gun control bill is “insanity on steroids”.

“Over the years we’ve seen some astonishingly bad legislation originate on Capitol Hill, but this one takes the term ‘abomination’ to an entirely new level. One look at this bill and you wonder whether Congresswoman Jackson Lee ever heard of the Bill of Rights, which includes the Second Amendment,” declared CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb.

Under H.R. 127, firearm owners must provide the ATF with the make, model, and serial number of every gun they have in their possession. This includes firearms people may have owned for multiple years. On top of that, Ammoland noted that “gun owners would have to report the identity of any person to whom, and any period of time during which, the firearm will be loaned to that individual.”

According to the licensing requirement, the license applicant has to go through a criminal background check. After that, they must undergo a psychological evaluation to determine if the person is psychologically fit enough to own a firearm. It doesn’t end there, however. Ammoland also observed that “Successful licensees must show they have an insurance policy which will cost $800.”

Gottlieb concluded:

H.R. 127 is a constitutionally-challenged monstrosity. It ignores the fact that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental right to keep and bear arms, not some strictly-regulated government privilege. Government cannot require a psychological evaluation to exercise a right enumerated in the Constitution.

Is it possible Sheila Jackson Lee skipped high school civics.This legislation treats firearms owners like second-class citizens for exercising their Second Amendment rights. It’s an outrage that a member of Congress could even conceive of such a measure, much less propose that it become law.

Instead of subjecting gun owners to such Draconian requirements, maybe it’s time to require psychological evaluations of each member of Congress.

Christopher Dorr, the President of the American Firearms Association, said the following about H.R. 127:

“This legislation is designed for just one purpose: to disarm an entire country of gun owners, reducing us to helpless serfs who are powerless against criminals and tyrants alike!”

Lee’s gun grab is just the next step in the litany of gun control that the federal government has shoved down Americans’ throats over the past 90 years. Second amendment advocates must be ready to quickly mobilize against these gun grabs.

With a Democrat trifecta, anti-gunners will try to pull off all sorts of shenanigans to undermine the right to keep and bear arms. With the right amount of pushback against moderate Democrats in relatively pro-gun states, this gun grab and countless others could potentially be derailed.

Not everything is set in stone in politics.

Gun control first for Biden executive orders

The 3 Worst Arguments Against Gun Control
thedailybeast.com

Washington Examiner

by Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist

Joe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide.

Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden’s presidential campaign, included the Democrat’s gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day.

Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to “make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.”

She added that “there’s really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action.”

It is expected that Biden will use executive orders, especially if the Democrats don’t win both Georgia special Senate elections. Even with those, however, it would be a split chamber — making it difficult for him to push through liberal elements of his agenda, including gun control.

The mention of guns in his initial executive actions is already sparking concern in the industry, which is readying an aggressive lobbying campaign. “I’m going to be pretty busy,” said one top gun lobbyist.

During the campaign, Biden won the endorsement of former candidate Beto O’Rourke, who famously promised to grab everyone’s AR-15.

While he calls his plan one aimed at ending “gun violence,” most of Biden’s ideas amount to limiting what people can buy or have. For example, he wants to end the sale of AR-15-style firearms (the most popular in the nation), regulate those that people already have, and limit the size of magazines those guns use.

Why Republicans Shouldn’t Cave To Democrats On Guns

It’s not only to prevent a Democrat landslide in 2020. It’s because Democrats will settle for nothing less than gun confiscation.

The Federalist

It has been said that Republicans are the “party of stupid” and Democrats the party of something worse. In their reaction to Democrats’ demand for gun control several weeks ago, President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared ready to prove the comparison about the GOP.

Soon after the multiple-victim murders in Dayton and El Paso—the former by a Democrat and self-described leftist supporter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the latter allegedly by someone who, for the sake of the environment, theorized “if we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can be more sustainable”—Trump and McConnell said they were considering two elements of Democrats’ decades-old civilian disarmament agenda: “universal” background checks and a ban on so-called “assault weapons” and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, including those for handguns.

If Trump and McConnell, encouraged by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, who supports susceptible-to-abuse “red flag” gun confiscation laws; Rick Scott, who as governor of Florida signed legislation prohibiting young adults from buying firearms; and Pat Toomey, co-sponsor of a version of “universal” checks, cave to Democrats on guns, they might alienate enough voters to assure that Democrats re-take the White House and Senate, and hold the House of Representatives in the 2020 elections.

However, there are more important reasons Republicans should reject Democrats’ demands on guns.

Nevada: Gun Control Bills Pass Assembly

Nevada: Gun Control Bills Pass Assembly

 

NRA-ILA

 

On April 23rd, the Nevada Assembly voted to pass Assembly Bill 291 and Assembly Bill 153.   AB 291 and AB 153 have been transmitted to the Senate and assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee for further consideration.

Assembly Bill 291, introduced by Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui (D-41), is omnibus anti-gun legislation that is a threat to both law-abiding gun owners residing in Nevada and those who are visiting.  Most notably, AB 291 would:

  • Allow Local Gun Control Laws: Nevada’s firearm preemption laws have been on the books since 1989 and have been improved over the years to ensure consistency in firearm laws throughout the state, by occupying the field of firearm related regulations with the State Legislature.  With the amendments to AB 291, the legislature would cede authority to the counties to pass stricter gun control laws without limitation.  This move could result in a confusing patchwork of laws for both residents and visitors to navigate while subjecting Nevadans in one county to a different set of rules and regulations regarding their constitutional rights than to a person in a neighboring county.
  • Criminalize Certain Firearm Modifications: With the amendments, this legislation remains broader than existing federal regulations, and would criminalize certain modifications on semi-automatic firearms.  Violations of this section would result in felony penalties.
  • Expand the ability for localities to create “gun-free zones:” These arbitrary boundaries would only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless against the criminals who ignore such restrictions.

Assembly Bill 153, introduced by Assembly Member Ozzie Fumo (D-21), would expand Nevada’s current law regulating firearm storage that could make firearms unavailable for self-defense.

Congressional Democrat spills the beans, says “gun confiscation” is the ultimate goal

DC Clothesline

(Natural News) Shall not infringe. Shall not infringe. Shall not infringe. How many times do the gun-grabbing Democrats in Congress need to hear these three simple words before they get it through their thick skulls that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, which protects and guarantees Americans’ God-given right to bear arms, is non-negotiable?

Apparently a few more times, as House Democrats are busy scheming up legislation that would make it much more difficult for the people of this country to rightfully buy, sell, and possess firearms. And their ultimate end game, as openly admitted by California Democrat Mike Thompson during a recent press conference, is to eventually confiscate everybody’s guns.

Responding to critics who say that the two Democratic House bills currently being proposed to curtail Americans’ Second Amendment rights would have done nothing to prevent past gun violence tragedies, Rep. Thompson agreed, stating further that the only way to end gun violence is to scrap the Second Amendment entirely.

“As far as anybody who says, ‘Well, this bill wouldn’t have solved this incident,’ the only thing that will solve every one is to do away with guns,” Rep. Thompson is quoted as saying. “So are you telling me that the critics of my bill want to do away with all guns?” he then asked, rhetorically.

It couldn’t be clearer: Leftists are planning to eventually take everybody’s guns by first starting with “reasonable gun control”

NC Democratic Sheriff Candidate Jokes About Killing Gun Owners

Townhall

Once again, we’re reminded how the Left just hates us, and that they can’t be trusted on gun control. Enough with the lies that they just want common sense gun control.  They either want to lay down the foundation to ban and confiscate guns, or they just want to kill you—or at least joke about it. In North Carolina, a Democrat running for sheriff joked about just that during a meeting with Moms Demand Action. The race is in Buncombe County (via NTK Network):

https://players.brightcove.net/5539867204001/default_default/index.html?videoId=5758272871001

Democrat Daryl Fisher, a candidate for Buncombe County Sheriff in North Carolina, joked that he would be fine with prying guns from owners’ “cold, dead hands” at a meeting with Moms Demand Action earlier in March.

“How far do we go?” Fisher asked rhetorically. “Any weapon that’s designed for use by the military, I think we should ban.” He told the gun control group that they shouldn’t be intimidated by right-wing “scare tactics.”

“You’ve heard people say, ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold, dead hands,’” Fisher said. The Democrat then shrugged his shoulders and commented, “Ok!”

For those quarterbacking this latest gun control push, are they aware of what’s happening in their backyard? I think they are. They say one thing to the cameras to not scare the country, but their supporters, the Democratic base, and obviously the rabid progressive wing of America want to ban guns—and they’ll probably have zero problems with gun owners being killed. Killing people to save people—granted what else would you expect from a political movement that thinks it’s perfectly fine to kill babies. It’s par for the course. At the same time, it just shows why every election at every level is important.

It Begins: Florida Resident’s Firearms, Ammunition Confiscated Under Gun Control Law

Free Republic

The guns and ammunition of a 56-year-old Lighthouse Point, Florida, resident were confiscated by police in what is reportedly the first such seizure under gun control laws signed by Gov. Rick Scott (R) last week. The Orlando Sentinel reports that “four firearms and 267 rounds of ammunition” were taken from the man, and he was “taken to a hospital for involuntary psychiatric treatment.”

The seized firearms were listed as “a Ruger LCP .380 pistol, an M2 Mauser .45 pistol, a Charter Arms .357 mag snub nose revolver and a Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun.”

The paper notes that “the civil ruling removing his access to guns and ammunition was granted under … new legislation — which permits confiscating guns from people who have not been committed but are deemed a potential risk to themselves or others, according to the order signed by Broward’s Chief Judge Jack Tuter.”

Gun control in Europe is almost total. It hasn’t stopped mass shooting attacks like Las Vegas

Fox News

via Free Republic

Within hours of the horrible attack in Las Vegas, before we knew most of the relevant facts about the tragedy, gun control advocates were calling for more gun control. Here is something I would like those advocates to consider: Europe, which has all the gun controls that are being pushed in the aftermath of the Las Vegas carnage, has actually suffered more bloodshed from these types of attacks than the U.S.

You heard that right: Countries such as France may have made all semi-automatic guns illegal, but that hasn’t stopped killers from getting fully automatic machine guns to use in mass shooting attacks. All four of the 2015 mass public shooting in France involved machine guns, including the 130 people killed in November of that year in multiple attacks including one at a concert venue.

In the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Europe saw machine gun attacks in airports and nightclubs by groups such as Black September and the Red Army Faction. In fact, machine guns are commonly used in mass shootings in the rest of the world.

This has not been the case here in the U.S. In fact, Sunday’s attack on a country music festival in Las Vegas – that left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 wounded – may be the first mass public shooting in the U.S. involving a machine gun, if it turns out the killer did use such a weapon. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, is believed to have used at least one fully automatic weapon – weapons that are heavily restricted under U.S. federal law.

It is an attack that is likely to rank 14th in the most deadly mass public shooting in the world since 1970. . . .

The Dick Act of 1902 – Gun Control FORBIDDEN!

Free Republic

H.R.11654

 

Were you aware of this law?

DICK ACT of 1902 – CAN’T BE REPEALED (GUN CONTROL FORBIDDEN) – Protection Against Tyrannical Government

It would appear that the administration is counting on the fact that the American Citizens don’t know this, their rights and the constitution. Don’t prove them right.

The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws.

It also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities.

**SPREAD THIS TO EVERYONE **

The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army.

The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.

The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders.

The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government can call upon the National Guard.

What is the Militia Bill H.R. 11654?

Get this message out to all your email contacts. It’s time to learn about your rights. Our current President and the Democrats don’t seem to worry about breaking laws or the U.S. Constitution.

They do things regardless even if it goes against the Constitution which they swore to abide by when each one of them took office. That itself is an impeachable offense!!!
